The TODAY’s Spotlight on Reading/Writing features CSU-Pueblo faculty, staff and students sharing their reading and writing experiences. The column is co-sponsored by the English and Foreign Languages Department and the English Club. This week’s feature highlights student Felicia Melendez.
What has been your greatest success in writing? (Personal writing, collaborative writing, completing a project or book, etc.): I think that my great success would just have to be writing my papers. I just think having the courage to write when you are on your own time or even for a class. It helps have lot courage if you don’t like it! Just think to yourself I can do it!
What do you struggle with in writing and how do you tackle that challenge? I think my biggest thing I have with writing would have to be making my paper make sense, but I just do my best and make sure that I have many people read my paper to help me out.
What’s your favorite book of all time? Author? I think I would have to say “House” by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker. It is a very good mystery and scary book that I like! I would also have to say the Twilight books!
What are you currently reading? Author? I am reading “New Moon” from the Twilight Series. The author is Stephenie Meyer.
What’s your favorite guilty reading pleasure? I think one thing that I read for pleasure would have to be People and teen magazines just to check out the gossip through famous people.
Do you have a favorite word or quotation and who is the author? I don’t think I have a favorite quote or word.
